Three Things to Do Before You Book Your Wedding Photographer

Updated: Apr 17, 2019

You’ve booked the caterer and the band, now it’s time to book your wedding photographer. If you’ve never hired a photographer before, you might not know where to start or what to look out for. Abraxas, Bedfordshire Wedding Photographers, have provided their top three tips for finding the right professional wedding photographer to make sure you look back on your pictures with a smile.


Research


Make sure you research a range of wedding photographers before you make your final choice. Look at their work and make sure to read any articles and reviews they have to find out how they work. Don’t forget to look at their social media channels to take a closer look at their wedding galleries. By researching a variety of wedding photographer and videographers it will provide a clear picture of how each company will capture your day and the type of service you can expect from them.


Arrange A Meeting


Not everyone feels comfortable posing in front of a camera. It’s vital to choose a photographer you feel at ease with in order to feel relaxed throughout your wedding day. Before you book your wedding photographer, ask to meet them in person or talk to them over the phone. While they may shoot beautiful wedding cinematography, you might find you don’t gel with them very well. Having a good relationship with your photographer will not only ensure a stress-free day, but will also help them capture the best parts of the most memorable day of your life.


Have A Wet Weather Plan


This is something commonly overlooked by most wedding couples. Unfortunately, in the UK there is always the possibility of rain so make sure your photographer has a plan for it. Most photographers carry large umbrellas and modern cameras that can withstand a lot of water, so if there is problematic weather on your wedding day it’s unlikely to be an issue. But if you don’t fancy braving the rain, your photographer should be flexible in their timings and allow time for the rain to ease. They should look at the bad weather as a challenge and turn any bad weather situation into a lovely moment for the couple; resulting in amazing photographs.
